John Tocher- Before Dawn [treetrunk 233]


Published August 11, 2012


May 11, 2012 --I had been up all night listening to and working on music. Just before dawn a big storm was raging. Some storms have a way of energizing me rather than lulling. As you will hear, I left my H2 Zoom recorder running, jumped off the porch and drove off into the rain.

The voices heard throughout are processed and derived from a field recording of an annoying conversation. Repeated over and over was the phrase: "you know what question I hate?"

I'll let you guess what question that was.

Done using AudioMulch, midi controller, hackintosh, personal field recordings. Drones fashioned from incidental overheard conversation. This is a companion piece to After Dusk. Which was also fashioned from field recordings made just in front of my home.

John Tocher does the Sadayatana podcast heard each week on stillstream.com, and is the purveyor (along with Ayn Morgan) of the Buddhist on Fire netlabel.





Dedicated to my friend Pete who passed on recently.

Long, deep, and mesmerizing, the way good ambient should be. Your best work so far, I think.
